The Dashless Wench

*******************
*
When peering down from on her bench,
The double-surname (dashless) wench
Employs the mirthless, tired scowl
Of one constrained by shackles foul.
*
The foul shackles which constrain
The sour justice like a chain,
Were written in the distant past
By men whose time and age has passed.
*
She much prefers the modern greats
Who hail from more progressive states,
Where charters are the latest trend,
And rights upon the state depend.
*
For in the state the justice sees
A better form of guarantees,
And Bader Ginsburg thinks it odd
Our rights have been endowed by God.

My goal is to produce poetical cartoons. I try to use metaphors and caricatures (or a politician’s own words) to address complex political and social situations. In this way, I sum up current events in humorous verse.
